Speed and Strength SS1600 Cruise Missile Helmet
Just received this helmet today, and couldn't wait to take it for a spin. It's definitely a head turner. Its a bit loud at highway speeds, but makes up for that with excellent airflow. Haven't had any problems with fogging yet, either. The one downside would have to be the fit. It's very snug. According to the sizing by S/S, I should fit into an XL easily; however, the helmet barely fits. Doesnt seem to be the size so much as the shape. The helmet seems to be very narrow. Overall I love it and would definitely suggest it to others.

Love this Lid!!
Bought this lid for the great design, love the color and the drop down visor, i ride a z1000 street fighter and the orange matches my bike nicely... its lightweight, and the vision is awesome.. simply put i love this Lid!!

Not even close
Got this helmet for Christmas this morning. Didn't even have to put it on to know it was going back. This helmet is cheap. Drop down visor is real flimsy and thin, and doesn't go up all the way on its own. Not spring loaded at all so it feels real cheap. Every aspect of this helmet is poorly made. It is a shame because it is a great looking lid. Top air vents drag across the mesh inside and it makes them stick. Very disappointed. Have had 2 scorpion helmets with built in visors and they are quality. Very strong, and solid built. This is just junk...

Favorite Helmet Yet
Pretty much a cut above what I asked for. Decent quality and an abundance of features for the price. I've encountered problems with the "Lock n Load" visor replacement system but it's nothing major, just the "lock" does not lock properly on one side of the helmet.
The visual aspect is the strongest feature coupled with price tag. I would have preferred the original ratchet release strap this helmet started production with but the double D ring strap comes with a snap to keep your strap in place. Overall aggressive and mean-looking. Perfect for the urban street rider or stunt rider. The drop down sun visor is an excellent bonus addition for the price. Strongly recommend!

Great helmet, especially for the price!
Like the video review by RevZilla stated, the airflow could definitely be improved, and my only other gripe is the lack of a deeper recess for speakers. Other than that, amazing helmet.
Not only does it look simply fantastic, the vents are easy to adjust in motion, and the visor stays tight where you put it. The chin cover is a nice touch, my first helmet to have one, and wow does it help with the cold air on early morning commutes, it makes for a much more comfortable ride.
Overall, with the aggressive styling and angles of this helmet, I'll definitely be wearing this proudly (and quickly) around town!

I like it and can't wait to test it out more.
I just received this helmet today. The video does not do it justice on appearance and the drop down visor is amazing! I took it out on my cruiser and found that the air flow (with both face and top vents open) was excellent; I was receiving plenty of air and on a summer day this would work great. However, I am riding in sub-50 degree weather currently, so I tried it out with all the vents closed to see how it would work once I had seen the open vents performance. Unfortunately, there is a huge amount of airflow that comes in through the face vents. I like the cold, but if there is a cold breeze (such as when I ride when it is 30 degrees), I may have to put a film or other protective barrier to help decrease the wind. Also, due to the high amount of air flow, the helmet is louder than my dad's old full face helmet. I would compare the noise level to when I wear a half helmet; I hear everything easily but this is what I like. I like the helmet and expect that to only improve with use.
